  1. Being on the left coast, it’s awesome having a (kinda) day baseball game for the World Series. If the east coast had this, maybe kids would be watching it.
  2. I just got charged for a bag at CVS. Not a fan of California. And every fast food place I’ve gone, I’ve gotten a plastic straw. What’s up with that?
  3. To clarify my statement, when I said you are part of the problem, it was probably worded wrong on my part. What I was trying to say was that you believe one thing. And it contradicts my opinion. So from my standpoint, you are part of the side I have an issue with on this subject. But again, it wasn't meant to be a dig or anything like that. Honestly.
  4. I didn't give you permission to disagree, GB. I'm not sure if you're trying to be combative on purpose, but I'm not. All I'm saying is we disagree. And that's ok. We don't have to agree on everything. Or anything. We can literally disagree about everything and still be friends on a message board.
  5. I don't. Off the top of my head, I don't. And it's a dangerous game to play nowadays trying to get close to that line.
  6. This is a great point. I've seen it twice and both times the weather couldn't have been more crystal clear. I remember people telling us, "You guys got really lucky. It's never this clear." BOTH TIMES! So, I can't complain too much. And the first time I saw it, it was cloudy every day we were here except for the day we went down to the bridge. We took a helicopter ride and flew around the towers. It's one of my fondest memories of my childhood. Of course, as we got out of the helicopter, we saw an old man collapse to the ground with his adult children screaming for someone to help them. So it's also one of the worst childhood memories. To this day, my parents will be like, "Remember when we took you kids to San Francisco?" And me and my older brother will be like, "Yeah, and we saw that old man die." That old man's pained face is etched in my brain forever, as is the panicked face of his son making direct eye contact with me as he yelled, "Someone, please, help!" Brings a chill to my body just typing this. But that helicopter ride was the bomb.
  7. But you keep saying that. I'm not saying be an #######. What I'm saying is that in this day and age, any attempt at humor to someone who is not exactly like you is considered "punching down." And that in turn is being an #######. But that's such a black and white view of things. And I apologize for using both of those terms when I'm neither black or white. This explanation takes some punching down. There is a HUGE middle ground. Always has been. There's being a jerk, which really was never acceptable. And there's being a guy who tells dad jokes. It used to be that most comedy fell either right at the middle of that or slightly below. But over the past two or three decades, that "jerk" area has expanded upwards. And what used to be the middle is now considered ####### zone. And it continues to move upwards. So, yes, there's still room for comedy. And people can be great at telling dad jokes. This is why I keep saying humor isn't going away. And when people say, "There are still very funny comedians out there", they are correct. But they are missing the point, GB.
  8. I honestly think my only chance of seeing the GGB at this point is from the airplane. And that requires me being in a window seat. That window being on the right side of the plane. And the plane taking off in a direction that brings the bridge into view. Because we did not see the bridge coming into land. I mean, it's not a huge deal, because I've seen it before. Twice, actually. Just thought it would be cool to see it again. I had never seen PB before, so that was the main one I wanted to check off the bucket list. I still hope to play there one day, but at least I was able to see it in case I die suddenly.
  9. I was actually surprised to see every single major news outlet covering the WS, where they do the "Who has the edge?" for all of the positions, having he Nats with the edge. I mean think about that. You have the two guys battling it out for the AL Cy Young Award going 1 and 2. Then you have Greinke who was a Cy Young winner at #3. And the consensus is that THAT'S not quite good enough to be the better Starters. That's crazy. This WS has a chance to be epic. Although, good on paper doesn't always work out to good on the field. And honestly, I'm hoping the Astros blow them out in 4 games. I remember in 2017 when the Astros went up early in Game 7 and cruised to victory. People witched and groaned (Halloween pun) that after the other games, Game 7 was a huge letdown. And as an Astros fan, I want to say, go to hell. If I have no skin in the game, I'm all for an epic 7 game series. But as a fan of the Astros, I hope this WS is boring for everyone and the Astros win in 4 games.
  10. I realize you didn't say it, but you're quoting it. It's ok if you disagree. You're allowed to. But what I'm telling you is that the majority of comics do not like the direction of comedy and this cancel culture that is happening. Sarah Silverman fell victim to it. Kevin Hart fell victim to it. I mean, these are huge names that are being affected. It's fine if you disagree. Just realize that you are part of the problem.
  11. Again, when you say "punching down" you are implying that it's mean spirited. This is a huge problem. We make fun of everyone equally. You shouldn't get special treatment because you think the person making jokes is above you.
  12. True. But the Nats pitching right now is the hottest pitching in baseball. Over the course of the whole season, they may not have been. But the Nats over the past 2 months have been lights out. Better than anyone else.
  13. Not sure where I'm getting a hotel. Have to ask the guy in charge out here where I should stay. He was saying maybe the hotel airport. If that was the case, after work on Thursday I'd head over to Marin, snap some pictures then head to the rental car return and the airport hotel. My chances really have sunk, though. Driving into work today (an 8 mile drive on 101), my back tire blew out. So my rental car now has a doughnut on it. When I called about exchanging my car, I was told that there are no available rental cars from Enterprise unless I wanted to drive back up to SFO. So I don't want to be doing too much driving on that thing.
